A variety of UK music’s biggest names have come together to create a charity single in aid of the Grenfell Tower tragedy. The group has been formed by Simon Cowell.
The likes of Rita Ora, Craig David, Paloma Faith were seen alongside Gregory Porter and James Blunt, to contribute to the likely hit single.Cowell, who lives a mile from the site of the disaster claimed he felt compelled to act after seeing the wrath of the flames.
Speaking of his reasoning behind the single, Simon said: ‘I was watching the news and then I drove up to see the building which is around the corner. I’ve seen a lot of bad things and not far from where I was sitting.
‘It dawned on you. It sent chills through you. What hit home was seeing that wall and seeing all of those messages.
‘I saw how residents turned up with water and clothes and that’s when I thought I’m not going to sit here and do nothing. For someone in my position to do nothing would be appalling.’
We hope to confirm a record tomorrow which will raise some money for the many people affected by this tragedy. Making calls tonight.

All proceeds will come to the families affected by the fire and he has yet to reveal which song it will be. Other names reportedly involved are Liam Payne, The Who, Emile Sande, and X Factor duo Louisa Johnson and James Arthur.
